What's the point of these "bookplate" editions? What makes them more collectible than the usual signed copies?

They are pointless, but they are limited, specially designed (don't ask me!), handsigned and therefore collectible. I don't think that they are more collectible than the usual signed books.
Now I've got the reissues three times: the signed copies, the limited edition slip case und these two copies with bookplates.

I feel like they couldn't make it to a signing location to physically sign the books, so they simply signed a massive amount of these cards, which were then pasted into the books. Nothing more than a pragmatic solution.

Actually, the Chris picture is the back cover of Literalmente (check the bar code in the corner). I guess that removes the possibility of publishing the second book, as I don't think they would use a new design.

I think it comes with the book as a gift.
